Re: Revs. H. And William BERNSTEIN #rabbinic

Saul Issroff
 

The Country Communities Project of SA friends of Beth Hatefusoth is
looking for information on:
BERNSTEIN, Rev. H. and his son, BERNSTEIN, Rev William M (& wife,
Frances), Minister, Shochet & teacher.

Rev William came to SA >from the United Kingdom. Son of Rabbi H
Bernstein of London. Rev Bernstein was a grandson of the Grodno Magid
and was considered a leading authority and author on shechita. Served
the communities of Witbank 1946-1947; Parys 1947-1949; Upington 1949;
Delmas 1950-1952; Aliwal North 1952-1957; Rustenburg 1960-1962;
Bethlehem 1962-1965; Vryheid 1965-1970; Bethal 1970-1976. Also served
in Randfontein, Standerton and Volksrust. These may have been
temporary or part-time posts. Left for Brisbane, Australia in 1977.

His father, Rev. H. Bernstein, came >from London and was Rabbi in
Bulawayo , then known as Southern Rhodesia.

Dates of arrival in South Africa, where they took smichas etc are
needed. Any references in Otzar HaRabbonim or similar works would be
useful.

A Final Thank You to JOWBR and HDB Volunteers and Donors #rabbinic

I'd like to personally thank all the donors and volunteers who
I've worked with over the past dozen years or so. Without your
contributions of material, time and expertise, JewishGen's
databases would not be the valuable asset they have become. It
has been a real honor to build searchable databases for the
greater genealogical community and especially to create permanent
records for the disappearing remnants of Jewish life in many of
your ancestral communities. The satisfaction I receive >from
talking/emailing with donors and researchers who find material on
their family has been keeping me going for the last few years.

However, the demands on my time to administer JOWBR and the
Holocaust Database for JewishGen in the current operating
environment have become too great for me to handle effectively.
Therefore, it is with great regret that I have tendered my
resignation as JewishGen's VP for Data Acquisition. I'm sure that
JewishGen will continue to grow their databases and I encourage
you to continue to submit data and photos and volunteer for data
entry, translating and other technical assignments.

As you know, it's a small community and I'm sure our paths will
cross. I hope to see many of you in Boston or other upcoming
conferences!
